Living in Longside, just two miles away from Bancon Homes’ Aden Meadows development in Mintlaw, they saw the signage on the road and decided to go in and “get a run-down of the site”.
Little did they know that this simple decision would be the start of a new journey for their growing family which would see them part exchange and move into one of the company’s beautiful Belmont homes in the middle of a global pandemic.
Originally from the central belt, Willie, a Global Field Services Manager with Baker Hughes and Ashley, an adult carer, always knew they wanted to move into a larger home once the kids were “bigger”, having already lived in a three-bedroom new build previously.
Willie said: “Not only was the design of the Belmont perfect for us, but we had great communication with the Bancon Team from start to finish. As we bought off plan, we were obviously nervous and had to wait to see the house built, so it was fantastic to get regular updates throughout the build even in the lockdown.”
The Belmont is a four-bedroom, detached home which features a separate living room and large open-plan kitchen, dining and family area as well as an integrated double garage. The space and quality of the Belmont were the key attractions for Willie and his family.
Willie said: “When we walked into the house for the first time it just had the wow factor and we fell in love with it. The space, layout and specification were amazing and there was plenty of room for the kids, their home schooling and my home working.
"The stunning open plan designer kitchen also has lots of space for us to dine together as a family. We did pay for some extras and those didn’t disappoint. Having bought a new build home before they were way more than we had expected.”
With a large south facing garden ideal for barbecues and a spacious double garage, Willie is also delighted with the outdoor space in his new home. He is already using the garage as a “man cave” as there is plenty of space for two cars on the drive.
He said: “When we saw the space on offer and realised the garden was south facing, we just knew this was the home for us.”
Willie is so delighted with his new home he’s even recommended Aden Meadows to his friends and family. Moving up from Edinburgh, parents Terry and Janet have taken his advice and since moved into the four-bedroom Rosehill home next door. For some people that might be a bit too close, but Willie says: “It’s fantastic for the kids to have their grandparents so close by and dare I say it we have babysitters on tap.”
